I was so excited about not having to travel 2000 miles this weekend, and being able to stay home......so excited, in fact, that I didn't stay home this weekend.
I know, makes no sense to me either. :-)
Mom, Inny, Lauren and I headed up to Grandma's Friday night...as a kind of girls night out. We met at the Godfather's in Blair for dinner. After eating more than we should have, and raiding the quarter machines for bouncy balls, and other nonsense we didn't need.....we moved our party to grandma's house.
She'd bought a new computer...quite some time ago I guess....and my first mission was to get it up and running for her.
I surprised myself. I mean, I'm not computer illiterate...but I'm not a "computer person" in any way. I can use them, but making them run if they decide to stop, hooking them up......just not my thing I guess. I'm more of a software gal. :-)
But, we got her old one taken down, new one up and running....email and all! Yeah Nej!
By the time we ate, then got the computer all set up, we didn't get done what we wanted...we'll just have to do it another night. (hehehe)
Saturday was nice. Mot came home from work, and went right to bed. He'd spent all night out on med runs...and then from about 2:00 and on at an apartment fire. Poor thing was bushed!!!
When he woke up, we headed out to run some errands. Lunch, then Scheels for tennis balls (for Isaac) and .410 shells for grandpa's shotgun. While at Scheels, we also bought a box of blue rock and decided to shoot some clays that afternoon. We left Scheels with shells, clays and a trainer for my bike. (hey, it was on sale...and I've been looking at them for quite some time!!)
Anyway, from there we home and loaded up 4 of our shotguns and the thrower. On our way to his parents house, we stopped at a park near their place. Mot's oldest brother has become a BBQ competitor. The event was over by the time we got there...and people were packing up. I hope I'm able to go next year!
(His brother and buddy ended up getting 7th on their brisket, and 8th overall - or something like that. Congrats!!!!)
Man....the two of us had a blast shooting that afternoon!!! We haven't done that in WAAAAYYY too long!!! I took my 20 ga, my 12 ga, the .410, and Mot brought one of his 12 ga.
410 is my new addiction!!! I couldn't stop smiling and giggling the whole time. I'd never shot one before, and figured I wouldn't hit a thing. I was smashing everything!!! How fun!!!
When we were finished, we ate dinner with his parents, then headed home.
Sunday was a lazy morning. Until about 9:00 when Mot called, and said he'd gotten the day off and was coming home. :-)
We headed out for lunch, then back to Scheels. #1 - because we didn't get the tennis balls like we were supposed to the day before #2 - we needed more ammo for grandpa's shotgun (giggle). We also stopped to look at over/under 410 shotguns. I'd LOVE to take it out on the skeet range, but grandpa's is only a single shot.
(I told you I was addicted!)
From there we hit the bookstore (go figure), Target (nearest Starbucks from where we were), a Mexican Import place (it was a bust), Best Buy (need to replace our computer in the den, it was a research mission), Backwoods (free backpack), Lowe's (shelves for the living room)...then headed home.
The rest of the day was pretty lazy. I watched some TV in between cat naps, and it felt great!!! :-) :-) :-)
